    Copied from the release notes:

    Kamikaze 7.06, June 2007
    ========================

    This marks the first official release of Kamikaze.

    What's new in Kamikaze?

    Build system.
    Our build system (aka buildroot) has been completely rewritten since the
    whiterussian releases. There's tons of new packages, and adding support
    for new packages has never been easier.

    Platforms.
    There are 8 supported architectures listed below, with support for many
    more in progress. Almost all of these platforms are based on 2.6 kernels
    with the exception of Broadcom -- Sorry; we couldn't get a stable wifi
    connection on 2.6.

    Configuration.
    We've made a radical change and tossed away NVRAM based configuration
    in favor of a much more robust set of config files.


    Platforms
    ---------

    atheros-2.6 - Fon Fonera, Ubiquiti LiteStation 2/5, Ubiquiti PowerStation2
    Atheros AR231x/AR5312 based devices.

    au1000-2.6 - Access/Meshcube (aka 4G Systems MTX-1)

    brcm-2.4 - Broadcom devices requiring Broadcom wifi
    (everyone migrating from Whiterussian)

    brcm47xx-2.6 - Netgear WGT634U, Broadcom Devices without Broadcom wifi
    (you can use this instead of brcm-2.4 but wifi won't work)

    ixp4xx-2.6 - Adi Engineering Pronghorn Metro, Compex NP18A, Compex WP18,
    Gateworks Avila, Iomega StorCenter, Linksys NSLU2*

    (NSLU2 avaiable via http://www.slug-firmware.net/)

    magicbox-2.6 - Magicbox v1.1 / v2.0

    rb532-2.6 - Mikrotik RouterBoard 532

    x86-2.6 - x86 based devices (eg. WRAP)

    Configuration
    -------------

    All of the configuration data is now kept within the filesystem, under the
    /etc/config directory. This means that when installing or reflashing, the
    configuration will be reset to default values as the filesystem is replaced.

    LAN: 192.168.1.1/24
    WAN: DHCP
    WIFI: Disabled

    Telnet: Enabled until root password set
    SSH: Used after setting root password


    The new configuration files are built in sections, each section begins with
    a "config" keyword defining the section, followed by one or more "option"
    keywords defining values for that section.

    config <type> <name>
    option <name> <value>
    option <name> <value>
    ...

    Configuration can be done either by editing the configuration files directly
    or by using the "uci" tool in a manner similar to the previous nvram util.

    uci show
    uci show <config file>
    uci show <config file>.<config name>
    uci get <file>.<config>.<option>
    uci set <file>.<config>.<option>=<value>
    uci del <file>.<config>.<option>
    uci commit

    Example:

    root@OpenWrt:~# uci show network.lan
    network.lan=interface
    network.lan.ifname=eth0.0
    network.lan.proto=static
    network.lan.ipaddr=192.168.1.1
    network.lan.netmask=255.255.255.0

    root@OpenWrt:~# uci set network.lan.ipaddr="192.168.1.20"

    root@OpenWrt:~# uci get network.lan.ipaddr
    192.168.1.20

    root@OpenWrt:~# uci commit

    root@OpenWrt:~# /etc/init.d/network restart

    Packages
    --------

    Additional features or utilities can be added via the ipkg system.

    ipkg update
    ipkg list
    ipkg install <package>
    ipkg remove <package>

    Note, there are two compressed filesystems, squashfs and jffs2. The squashfs
    partition is readonly and contains all the files shipped with the firmware.
    The jffs2 partition is writable, and stores changes to squashfs.

    - Reinstalling or upgrading packages contained on squashfs is not recommend;
    the old package will simply be hidden, not deleted.

    - Because the filesystems are compressed, ipkg cannot determine if you have
    enough free space, and consequently may run out. If this happens you should
    try to manually delete files.
